I visited Haight Street for my weekly dose of street fashion. The street has a long history of style, but I often find myself overlooking it. The district is an epicenter of nostalgia, with more secondhand clothing stores per block than anywhere else in the city. The Haight Street "look" is so definitive -- very vintage, with hints of hippie history yet a bit more preppy than the Mission's grunge-thrift vibe. It's one of my favorite San Francisco styles because it seems to have more longevity and a touch more polish than most.

In recent weeks I've noticed a lot of harem pants out and about in San Francisco. For a while, I theorized that they were becoming a men's trend, but then I spotted this woman. What do you guys think? Are harem pants here to stay?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
